Another option would be to work together a spell to recognize self love in addition to attracting love. If one does not feel love for themselves then it is pretty difficult for them to accept love from others.
it might help us advise on possible methods or processes if you could share a bit on where your own knowledge and practice lies. Do you ascribe to any particular deities or practices? (Wicca, hellenic, heathenry, Druidic, ecclectic, etc?) And are there any tools you already have? Have you worked magic before or are you familiar with the general process and concept?
If we can understand what you already use and how you normally practice it would help us in offering tools and ideas that would be compatible with what you already connect with.
